I really like the look and feel of this. I've lost twice on the second round but I will be sure to have another crack at it

Even after months of testing a few bugs slipped in. If you notice something feel free to contact me direct from my website or post it here.

Bugs to be dealt with...

1-Having to select your stat disc before each match. Currently after a match the game equips you with the default stat disc. Obviously you shouldn't have to do this, will be fixed.

2-On the Main Menu there is a coin by the high score. I had removed that and placed "High Score" by it but it seems like the old art made it in. That is not your coin count, that is your best score:-)

3-Tutorial pops up every time you return to the game. Will look to give an option to disable.



Possible Changes...

1-I don't want to change anything that would effect scoring because this is a high score game. I am looking at the possibility of adding check points every ten wrestlers or so, so that when you are defeated you can start close to where you left off with a reset score. This is so that players have a chance to unlock more of the wrestlers. As is, very few people will see 3/4 of the wrestlers unless they really stick with the game.

2-More Coins/Energy Drinks

I've managed to make it a little further since I worked out that I can play as the wrestlers I beat, and they have different stats. I've managed to get a stat bonus coin from the gumball machine too. Every time I've tried my luck spending one coin I have failed, and I succeeded when I put 3 in at once.

I've got up to the 6th round although I feel that was as much good luck as it was good judgement. I'm torn as to whether I should be getting coins when they pop up and throwing the match or if I should be chasing better and better wrestlers to unlock them too. That's an interesting choice I have to make

If you want to unlock new stat discs, your odds increase by each coin you wager. I usually won't try the toy machine unless I have 5 coins to put in at once. (Unless I really need an energy drink).

You can reset your stats, so I usually go on coin runs where I play just trying to win coins. I am going to look at adding more coins in an update.

Hello,

Thanks for trying the game. Achievements worked in the Pre-Apple version but I have not checked after release. Thanks for pointing that out, I will look into it.
